When Built According To Plan And Pattern

Words In Season:
Storms of challenges can only rage, but it can never sink nor prevail over a life built according to pattern.
   The King's Scribe 

"And the waters prevailed, and were increased greatly upon; and the ark went upon the face of the waters"
                     Genesis 7:18
And the ark went UPON not under the face of the waters. The ark stayed afloat and kept floating UPON the face of the waters. The more the waters prevailed and increased in depth, the more the ark floated and stayed afloat upon the waters.
There may not be multistorey skyscrapers in those days. Had there been, the flood of waters would still have sunk and prevailed over them them, no matter their heights. Because the waters that can prevail over the tallest iroko trees in those days, it will certainly prevail over skyscrapers. But Noah's ark floated. The waters did not and cannot prevail over it, much more of sinking it.
How come? 
Noah's ark was built according to pattern.
Noah carefully followed God's instructions to the letter. Right from the type of trees to be used to the exact length and breath of the ark, to the number of floors, you name it, Noah did exactly as God instructed. God instructed Noah to use gopher wood, he did not use obeche wood.
By His grace and mercy and without apology to any, am blessed to be a member of Church, where contrary to wicked and malicious slanders, nobody teaches us here that life gonna be a smooth roller coaster devoid of challenges. Not even the setman Bishop teaches us that.
Rather,  the emphasis here is - build and live your according to God's instructions. So that no matter what comes your way, you will be able to stand and stand strong!
The storms may come and beat vehemently upon the house, but house will not crash but stand strong because it was built upon the rock. 
All I keep hearing over and over and all the time from from pulpit here is "if thou shall diligently obey the voice of The Lord thy God to observe and to DO all...." And the testimony of our fathers and leaders here that keep ringing into all ears at all times is: "....we do nothing except it is commanded"
So that no matter what comes along the way, intense it may, no matter how hopeless it seems to look, we shall always and at all times remain - WINNERS.
No storm, no matter it's intensity or ferocity can prevail against nor sink a man that lives a divinely instructed and directed life.
Jesus The Master Builder said it all "....whosoever heareth these sayings of mine and doeth them...." Then went He further "....the rain descended and the floods came, and the winds blew, and beat upon that house, AND IT FELL NOT...." Matthew 7:24 - 25.
Among these sayings of His today and which as many of us need to DO is "Repent: for the Kingdom of Heaven is at hand"
Folks, it is time and today is it, to heed His sayings and repent of your sinful and disobedient ways, believe in Christ Jesus and begin to rebuild your life according to His sayings. So that you can stand upon the waters and not under when it comes.
